IPIP equivalent to California Psychological Inventory, CPI

Test scores

These are your results from the IPIP equivalent to California Psychological Inventory.

• Scores here are reported as percentage of maximum possible score. So they can not be directly compared to norms from other sources.

• These scores will only correlate with the scores you would actually obtain if you took a real CPI, and are probably much less valid.
